Whether you’re a well-established law firm with decades of experience or your practice is just getting off the ground, one of the keys to the continuing success of your business is the skills set of your employees. Constantly developing and updating your team’s skills will ensure that you have at your disposal not just a wide range of expertise, but also up to date knowledge and well-sharpened abilities.

Regular legal training therefore shouldn’t be seen as a luxury to be indulged occasionally only when the going’s good, but as a vital component of your short-term and long-term business plan.

Developing niche skills

Whereas some training can cover quite a broad area of law, others deal with very specific niche areas, and can help to diversify the skills of your team and the services you can offer your clients.
Personal injury training is one such example, and a prudent area to move into. Every year, thousands of people in the UK are injured in accidents that were not their fault, whether on the roads, at work or in a public place. The right training can help you to break into this lucrative area of the legal marketplace, while at the same time helping people get the compensation they need and deserve.

When undertaking personal injury training, you might choose to train your whole legal team up to the same standard, or you could select a few team members and develop their skills further in this niche. This kind of specialisation can enable you to build a team that is dynamic, well balanced and capable of handling a wide and varied caseload.

Other benefits of in-house legal training

As well as adding extra strings to your employees’ bows, extra legal training can help them to improve and sharpen the skills that they already have, and keep their knowledge-base up to date with the latest regulations and best practice techniques.

Not only this, but in-house legal training also has a number of indirect benefits. It can be a potent morale booster for staff, as it shows that they are valued members of the team and that the firm cares about their career progression. It can also help to create a better team dynamic, as team members take a break from the routine of everyday work to learn, problem-solve and work together.

It’s also worth remembering that in the case of accredited legal training courses, it can count towards the required number of CPD points for the individual.

In-house training is often preferable, for both employers and employees, because it requires less time to be taken out of a working day, and avoids the costs that would be incurred by travelling to an external training centre.

A worthwhile investment

All in all, the cumulative effects of even a single training session can be significant, more than paying for itself. As a means to expand the skill set of specific members of staff or of the entire team, in-house legal training is a powerful tool indeed.

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.
